The following is an update on the Lab’s current projects:

Digital Future

In May the Lab released a report on the first phase of the Digital Future Project. It set out a framework of 12 characteristics which are important to embed in any future (or current) system of digitally enabled reporting. For the next phase of the project, the Lab are organising a series of workshops and roundtables to identify which technologies might best meet these characteristics. If you have particular skills or experience in any of the following, we would be happy to invite you to the sessions:

  • Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Video for reporting
  • Blockchain and other forms of disaggregated ledgers
  • XBRL, iXBRL and tagging
  • Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing
  • Data analysis, dashboards and reporting technology.
The workshops (each of about two hours) will run across the summer / autumn and be in London. If you are interested in attending, please contact us at

Risk and Viability reporting

In May the Lab started a project on Risk and Viability Reporting.  This project is timetabled to run throughout the summer, and we are currently obtaining the views of members of the investment community. There is still time to participate, so please let us know if you are interested in taking part.
